GOLDEN GLOBE FOREIGN-LANGUAGE NOMINEES 2014
THE GREAT BEAUTY
THE GREAT BEAUTY
LA GRANDE BELLEZZA
2013, Janus Films, 142 min, Italy, Dir: Paolo Sorrentino

Director Paolo Sorrentino (IL DIVO) returns with a dazzling elegy to Rome’s past glories - and those of Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo), a once-promising writer who fritters away his time with Roman high society. There are echoes of LA DOLCE VITA in this portrait of a man adrift in the Eternal City, not the least of which is the sense that we are witnessing a master filmmaker at work. Official selection of the 2013 Cannes International Film Festival, and Italy’s official entry for the 2014 Foreign-Language Film Oscar. “THE GREAT BEAUTY will surprise, perplex and bewitch highbrow audiences yearning for cinematic feasts.” – Jay Weissberg, Variety. In Italian with English subtitles.


Screening format: DCP | On Saturday, January 11th at the EGYPTIAN THEATRE, THE GREAT BEAUTY director Paolo Sorrentino will take part in a FREE roundtable discussion with the other directors of the nominated films.
